In the next five months, we organize the Research Colloquium of the Max Planck Institute of European Legal History in Frankfurt a.M. Our monthly meetings will focus on pivotal topics of the juridical, political, and philosophical debates, approaching them from different disciplinary backgrounds and texts, asking for Salmantine characteristics and thus contributing to the priotarisation of concepts and topics in the future dictionary of the School of Salamanca’s juridical-political language.
Working languages of the colloquium will be English and Spanisch.

The SIEPM (Société Internationale pour l’Étude de la Philosophie Médiévale) was founded in 1958, and every five years it holds a large conference for philosophers and other scholars to discuss medieval and early modern philosophy.

The three organizers Dr. Roberto Hofmeister Pich, Prof. Dr. Alfredo Santiago Culleton and Dr. Alfredo Carlos Storck focused on Spanish and Portuguese second scholasticism as the vessel carrying European theology and philosophy into the Americas and invited the participants to address many topics that the Salamancan jurists and theologians treated intensively in their relectiones, commentaries and treatises.
